Annual C.H.I.P Rubber Duck Race
The Hampton Roads Rubber Duck Race is the primary fundraising event to support the Children's Health Investment Program (CHIP) of South Hampton Roads. CHIP supports children ages 0-6 and their families by assigning nurses and parent educators to follow and guide the child and family toward healthy choices and practices in the child's early development.
In the duck race, numbered ducks are "sold" to participants and dumped together and simultaneously for a quick race in a special track at the Great Bridge Locks. The "owner" of the duck that crosses first will win $10,000!
